It was a dominant display by the Hunter Hornets over the weekend with a number of Orange players making their mark.
The Junior Regionals were held up at Waratahs over the weekend, with sides from all over the state competing.
Representative director and coach of the U12s boys team, Wayne Hill, said it was a boon for the city.
"It was massive for Orange to host it and better weather than two years ago which a lot of the participants were happy about," he said.
"It was pretty much perfect apart from some sprinkling rain on Sunday.
"The successful 18s girls team had about four Orange players and we had a lot of players make the NSW Merit team from the competition."
The 18s girls weren't the only Hornets side to taste success, with the 14s boys also coming out tops in the grand final 5-3.
Of the Hunter sides to finish runners up, the 18s boys lost 7-6 in the grand final, the 16s girls went down 3-2 while the 16s boys lost 6-5.
"All the visiting regions were quite amazed with the beauty of Orange," Hill added.
